Weekly Monday Night Meditation Group

A The Bodhisattva Way: GenerosityLast night we witnessed a powerful full moon during Monday night’s weekly Meditation Group. We meditated and contemplated generosity. Reading from Lama Surya Das’ Buddha Is As Buddha Does, he writes “… each of our thoughts, words and actions sets in motion a related chain of events that reverberates in the universe as a whole, as well as in our own individual lives. If we fail to be generous, kind and giving, we not only diminish the potential existence of these qualities in the …world around us but also create a life for ourselves that is in many ways impoverished.”
We completed the evening by doing a Primus Activation Meditation created by Naisha Ahsian. Oh…what an awesome event.

Written within the painting  is the following prayer:

” May I Perfect the Sublime Virtue of Generosity

Which Liberates and Releases

Craving, Grasping and Attachments

And Brings Joyous Contentment”.

Painting by Lidia Scher, 2009 is a Mixed Media Acrylic Painting on Canvas. It  is part of the Spiritual Works Galllery @www.LidiaScherArt.com

  1. Last night’s meditation was amazing. I got such clarity on my generosity as it relates to my business. I felt like I KNEW what generosity felt like in my body. Thanks Lidia!

    This prayer became a little more clear after last night.

    Prayer of St. Francis

    Lord, make me an instrument of your peace

    Where there is hatred, let me bring love

    Where there is injury, pardon

    Where there is doubt, bring your faith

    Where there is despair, hope

    Where there is darkness, bring your light

    Where there is sadness, bring your joy

    Divine Master, grant that I may not seek to be consoled as to console

    Grant that I may not seek to be understood as to understand

    Lord, grant that I may not seek to be loved, as to love

    For it is in giving that we receive

    In pardoning that we are pardoned

    It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life
